And you think you had a bad hair day!


"The Lord looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men." Psalm 33:13

Thank goodness He doesn't care about how our hair looks!

Have a great Monday, remember-it's the inside that counts.

Marine Museum: Giving Thanks

When visiting my son and his family in Virginia a few weeks ago, we went to the Marine Museum. Impressive even from the outside.

As you walk in the lobby you first approach the rotunda where pictures, quotes, air and land vehicles with Marine mannequins are posed.

Each mannequin is so very life-like. Here my grandson is learning what it took to keep our country safe and free.

Here is my son wearing a shirt that reads, "We fight what you fear."

This entire wall is dedicated to those who died at Iwo Jima. A pin signifies each person. There were panels above and below. Hard to believe so many died at one battle.

This is the flag that flew over Iwo Jima. (Hard to get a good picture with all the lights and reflections.)

The exhibits were impressive and many had orginal equipement. (I have many more pics...but I'll spare you. :P)

Made me proud to see this wonderful museum. Made me proud of our country. Makes me proud to live here.

"Fight the good fight of faith." 1 Timothy 6:12

Yes, we do have to fight in this life. Even in our faith. Father, help me to be strong and wise in all battles.

Oh, here's one of my favorite pictures.
My grandkids. :)
